Happy New Year! Should be an interesting semester as I am teaching Calculus I and Math 79, Quant. Reasoning. Haven't taught Calculus I since Fall of 2012 which was my first semester at Whittier. This semester I plan on using more computational tools to reinforce concepts. Students have already learned basic Matlab, array manipulation, function handles, and plotting. That's all in 1.5 lectures to boot!
Was an interesting semester that was challenging and rewarding. Teaching courses both in and out of my comfort zone will do that to you. Reflections soon to come!
